Traditional Transylvania

Provision: The Transylvania School of Self-Sufficiency opens this summer  offering one week courses in self-sufficient living.  Founders Lars and Robyn moved to Transylvania 3 years ago and discovered one of the last corners in Europe  where true sustainability can be found in the majority of its rural villages. Villagers practice self-sufficiency in a way that used to be common practice . They maintain a low impact life style, which is reflected nowadays in our modern eco villages. Provision is a Transylvania-based informal school that offers its student visitors the possibility to get inspired and learn through osmosis from local sustainable practices. 
“we wish to make the rich local wisdom available, not only to ourselves, but to our visitors as well. We believe that incorporating traditional, local knowledge is an important element in creating new pathways to a more balanced world.” All of Provision’s faculty live in Transylvania and choose to participate in a subsistence farming life style.
Provision operates on a gift economy basis (donation) and its proceeds go towards helping those living a low impact life style around the village of Alunisu, where Provision is based, to continue.
